Philip Glass String Sextet (arr. Michael Riesman)
Tchaikovsky Souvenir de Florence
Written following a visit to Italy, Tchaikovsky’s string sextet exhibits plenty of Russian passion and fervour, combined with Italian lyricism and brilliance. In contrast, Glass’ String Sextet explores the soundworld of minimalism which despite its conciseness of material, is rich and compelling.
